Depression. It's difficult to deal with depressed people.

Particularly when they're in love with you.

It's an unfortunate dance. Step forward and show consideration, and you feed the fires. Adding motivation to the behavior. Concrete reinforcement.

Step back and sway away. You feed the ice. The depression deepens, and you start to sink with the ship. Sooner or later, you'll be as cold as the Titanic.

I'm not a good dancer - not with my feet or my words. I try to learn the steps and the hand movements, but grace does not possess me. One of us stumbles and falls.
